tlie Allies on each side, they went with such speed that the
change in the battle line in that section of the front during a few
hours was astonishing. Xot until the French reached the Laon
l.a Fere railroad did they encounter and real resistance.
Italian troops participated in the advance and now arc en
gaged 011 the hills north of the Ailette river. At this particular
point the German lines have been pressed back, or have been
withdrawn, so that a sharp angle has been created.
Allied Advance Slows Down
With the exception of the area north of Douai. there appears
to have been a slowing down of the Allied advance during the
past two days. At no point have the British and Americans
swept ahead as they dill on Thursday and Friday last week.
This may indicate the Germans have-reached what is known
as the llynding or Brunhild line. This position, while apparently
much less formidable than the Ilindenburg system, still is
strong enough to retard pursuit by the Allies and perhaps hold
them up for some time.
The 1 landing line runs from Antwerp to Ghent and thence
to Tournai, C'onde. V alenciennes, Solesmes, Guise. Rethel,
\ ouziers, Duji-sur-Meuse, and then down the base of the St.
Mihicl salient to the Moselle, where it joins the old front run
ning through Lorraine and the Vosges to the Swiss frontier.
British Units Reach Solesmes
French and the British forces virtually have reached this
line east of Cambrai and St. Ouentin. British units are reported
at Solesmes, while the French, farther south,-are within four
miles of (ittise.
On the Champagne front General Bertholet is less than five
miles from Rethel. while farther east. General Gouraud has taken
\ ouziers, but has not penetrated much north of that place.
Americans fighting in the Argonne region are through the
Kriemhild line, but their progress there is very slow.
Huns Avert Disaster
Study of the tactics followed by the Germans-during the
past week has shown that they are following the methods of
retreat used in the Maine and Somme sailents in July and August.
"They have held their flanks fairly secure and have withdrawn
their center. They have thus apparently escaped disaster around
Laon, where military experts have said the Germans had delayed
their retirement too long for their own safety.
British Reach Douai
In the region of Douai, British troops arc fighting their way
forward against desperate resistance and in spite of numerous
waterways which serve to hold up their advance. Douai virtually i
is reached, while to the north the line is sagging oft" sharply to the:
east. Should Douai fall, the British will be able to advance on
The Oise river has been crossed by the French at Originy, I
northeast of La Fere, and they have advanced close to the river
to the north.
In Albania, the Italians have captured Kavaya, twelve miles!
southeast of Duraz^o.
France Breaks -Wtih Finland
Paris. Oct. 14. France has broken oft" the semoft'ivial dip-:
lomatic relations which have existed with Finland it is officially
announced. This action was taken because the Finnish diet,
having by a coup d'etat substituted a monarchy for a republic,
and called a German prince to the throne. French interests in
Finland will be in charge of a consular agent at Helsingfors.
